Feb 28. 2022

Hong Kong – 16 February, 2022 - Samsung Electronics H.K. Company, Limited today announced the launch of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, S8+ and S8 tablets, which enable users to unleash extraordinary productivity and creativity anytime, anywhere; thanks to its outstanding hardware, smoother upgrades to the S Pen, ultimate performance and convenient seamless connectivity to the Galaxy ecosystem, yielding increased work efficiency and enjoyment of entertainment. The Galaxy Tab S8 series pushes the boundaries of tablets by introducing the first Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra model with the largest 14.6-inch high-quality display in the Galaxy Tab series. Paired with 120Hz refresh rate and Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos®, the series brings the perfect viewing experience for users who like to watch movies and stream media on tablets. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is further equipped with dual front cameras, three microphone set-up with noise reduction technology and upgraded Auto Framing feature, which perfectly meets the standards of professional video conferencing. Along with 4nm processor, extremely low latency S Pen, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 network connectivity and other top performances, not to mention the slim design and portability, the Galaxy Tab S8 series are every user’s best partner in entertainment and work.

 

“Video has become one of the primary methods of communication for this generation. Thus, Samsung is helping users stay ahead of the ever-changing world with the launch of the new Galaxy Tab S8 series that boasts large displays, advanced technology, and a full range of productivity and creative features, enabling users to enjoy an ultimate entertainment experience and get every job done efficiently,” said Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Company, Limited.

 

Lightweight, Durable and an Expansive Display for Endless Ultimate Audiovisual Experience

Many users like to use tablets to watch movies or stream videos. Therefore, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is equipped with expansive high-quality displays. The Galaxy Tab S8 display is 11-inches, Tab S8+ is 12.4-inches, and the Tab S8 Ultra features the largest 14.6-inches screen in the series, reaching an ultra-high screen ratio of 16:10 when combined with a very thin 6.3mm bezel. The three Galaxy Tab S8 series models also feature a 120Hz refresh rate and Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos® for immersive cinematic viewing.

 

As video communication becomes more important, video calls have become a recurring item in user’s work or family agendas. Therefore, the Galaxy Tab S8 series has 12-megapixel high-definition front cameras, and the S8 Ultra is equipped with dual front cameras with wide and ultra-wide angle, supporting professional 4K video quality[1]. Even if users need to invite friends or business partners to join during the call, there is no need to worry about the focus as Samsung's advanced Auto Framing technology allows users to maintain focus during the call and automatically zooms to accommodate all participants when they join. The Galaxy Tab S8 series is equipped with three-microphones with noise reduction technology, which can effectively prevent unwanted background noise and keep calls clear even in noisy outdoor environments.

 

The Dual Recording feature of the Galaxy Tab S8 series records the screen and camera footage at the same time. Concurrently, users may write notes directly on the screen, so use your tablet for online classes without worrying about having missed the point. Users can also take advantage of the high-quality video calling and real-time sharing experience launched by Samsung and Google Duo to watch movies with friends on YouTube, browse the web, or record inspirations and exchange ideas on Google's interactive whiteboard, JamBoard. Whether it's a work video conference, a daily video call, or an online classroom, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is perfect for what users need.

 

In addition, the Galaxy Tab S8 series’ body is made of sturdy Armor Aluminum, which makes the overall design slimmer, lighter and more durable. Users can easily slip the tablet in their bag and carry it with them. Coupled with a powerful battery of up to 11,200mAh[2] and ultra-fast charging of up to 45W, the Galaxy Tab S8 series can restore 100% power in 80 minutes[3], allowing users to get to work, stay connected, or indulge in the ultimate entertainment, whether on the go, in the office or at home.

Revolutionary Performance and Versatile Smart Tools Inspire Limitless Productivity and Creativity

Equipped with top performance and a range of practical functions, the Galaxy Tab S8 series helps users cope with multiple tasks simultaneously, maximize productivity and stimulate limitless creativity. The Galaxy Tab S8 series uses the fastest high-performance 4nm chip in the Galaxy tablet and the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. With 5G network, users can safely share files or enjoy streaming games and video content, where high-speed and stable network will make all tasks more effective. Not only that, the powerful battery of the Galaxy Tab S8 series can charge other devices by simply connecting a USB-C cable to the designated device. The tablet can easily transform into a portable charger, and users no longer have to worry about running out of battery during their trip[4].

 

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and S8+ are equipped with a new and upgraded S Pen, using advanced prediction algorithm which greatly reduces the latency to 2.8ms[5], enabling a paralleled user experience of pen and paper, whether it is writing notes or drawing, it is extremely fluid and unrestrictive. For the first time ever, through Samsung's exclusive partnership with Clip Studio Paint[6], users can connect to their Galaxy smartphone and turn it into a digital color palette. Using the S Pen as a brush on the tablet, users unleash their creativity when inspiration arises. In addition, the S Pen also supports Air Action[7], which allows users to control the tablet remotely with simple gestures, such as take remote selfies, control slides, play music or create notes.

 

If users need to perform multiple tasks at the same time, the substantial display of the Galaxy Tab S8 series can be split into multiple resizable windows to display different contents, meaning users may watch class slides on the left half of the screen, whilst searching for information online and writing class notes with the S Pen on the right. Without switching back and forth between different applications, this greatly increases work efficiency.

 

The Galaxy Tab S8 series offers up to 16GB RAM and 512GB of built-in storage. It also supports up to 1TB microSD[8] card to expand storage space, helping users store large work files and media content.

 

Perfect Collaboration Across the Galaxy Ecosystem

The Galaxy Tab S8 series brings users a high-level comprehensive experience when used with other Galaxy ecosystem devices. For example, the Galaxy Tab S8 series can be used as an extended second screen[9] on a Windows computer, using a PC to view the data and copy the required information to the tablet for annotation. The upgraded Samsung DeX[10] switches the Galaxy Tab S8 series to desktop mode for easier collaboration with the PC's interface. Users may also sync the transparent app windows with DeX mirroring to share the tablet’s screen on an external display for a convenient all-round PC experience.

 

Users can also use Quick Share to transfer files or videos between tablets and Galaxy devices faster than before[11], or use Auto Switch to automatically pair the Galaxy Buds from user’s Galaxy smartphone to the tablet, continuing to watch movies on the tablet after the phone call ends and quickly switching devices at any time to meet different daily needs.

 

For the first time, users can now use Samsung Health on a tablet to watch fitness videos, monitor fitness data and track health from the Galaxy Watch, with a larger display that highlights all the information at a glance.

 

The Galaxy Tab S8 series supports up to four generations of One UI and Android OS upgrades, as well as up to five years of security updates, bringing users more advanced practical features and long-lasting device security protection.

 

A Variety of Practical and Fashionable Accessories for Every Style

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and S8+ comes in a classic graphite color, while the Galaxy Tab S8 will be available in two elegant colors – Graphite and Pink Gold. Samsung has also introduced a number of fashionable accessories, including the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Keyboard Cover[12] that has a wider backlit keyboard and adjustable viewing angles, which perfectly matches the powerful performance of the Tab S8 Ultra; the Note View Cover allows writing notes on the screen cover, which feels like writing on paper; and the Strap Cover allows users to hold the tablet in a more comfortable way[13]. Eye-catching strap colors effortlessly complement the user's unique style.
